This week started with Sophia firing on all cylinders: three eggs in three days.
Then a day of rest. (understandable)
And another. (puzzling, but acceptable)
And another. (are we at worrisome yet?)
Then, today, we get egg number four. Hooray!
Of course, the topic of off-line conversations have all been around, "well what do you think is wrong with her?" and "is this how they work?" and have greatly exposed my newbie status in this art of backyard chicken farming.
I just don't know how this all works, but that's what's driven me to blog here, so that others can follow along as I lurch through this thick unknowingness that is raising chickens in one's backyard.
And I'm so grateful to have so many kind folks who weigh in with comments that light the way, even if it's only a brief glimpse at the path ahead. Glad to have you here in the blogosphere with me.
Now, back to worrying about when the next egg will arrive!
